Binay tops new survey

VICE President Jejomar Binay on Monday expressed gratitude for the people’s continued support after topping the nationwide survey of the Radio Mindanao Network ahead of Senator Grace Poe ranked.

Binay topped the RMN survey for president with 26.16 percent of the total votes while Poe ranked second with 24.84 percent and DILG Secretary Mar Roxas third with 18.14 percent. The survey was conducted Aug. 11 to 18. The results were published in several newspapers Monday.

“The Vice President is fighting an uphill battle against those who are bent on continuing a regime of social inequality. He is grateful for the people’s unbending support,” said Joey Salgado, vice president media affairs spokesperson said.

Salgado said despite the barrage of lies and political attacks, the vice president intends to continue to talk directly with the people.

“There is only one message from the vice president to the people: Now is the time for real change, and better life.” Salgado said.

“The real enemy is hunger, poverty and unemployment under the administration that favors a few,” he added.

In the RMN survey, the vice president outshone Poe and Roxas in North Luzon. Poe led in NCR and South Luzon while Roxas topped the Visayas.

Binay and Poe were in tight competition for Central Luzon, Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal and Mindanao.

The survey, with a +/- 2.5-percent margin of error, was conducted on Aug. 11 to 18 with 4,718 randomly selected radio listeners and registered voters nationwide.

RMN Research Department interviewed participants from 17 cities and one municipality in Metro Manila, the Calabar provinces, six provinces in Central Luzon, 13 areas in North and South Luzon, 20 areas in Visayas, and 13 areas in Mindanao.
